NRL Supercoach Round 1 Review

How good is it to be back into the cut and thrust of another NRL Supercoach season!

And it’s not like we can stop for a breather.. we have injuries all over the shop that need to be dealt with. This is where the real stuff begins.. we need to all trade our way to success.

It was bloody great to be joined in the podcast today by The Cowboy who has been delivering our community elite wisdom on these pages all preseason!

Look forward to discussing the upcoming round with you in the comments below – stay tuned also for Cowboy’s tips on the site in the lead in to Round 2

Scored 960 only 300 off the pace, I was lucky with the injury carnage with only Benry who I might use as a loophole but the Warriors play Friday night so i could only use Cartwright or Merrin as VC on Thursday night
If I trade i will go P.Carter for Benry

    jockreynolds · 08/03/2016 at 18:20

    Great start Blush! I'm not too happy with my start – 897. Looks like you are in a magnificent position early mate. I'm definitely offloading Gallen – likely flicking him for Fifita

Wazza · 08/03/2016 at 19:15

not a great start for me 890…missed 150 odd by picking the wrong bloody bench players as my reserves…hopefully fix it up for this week

I took Ethan Lowe to replace Gallen

    jockreynolds · 08/03/2016 at 19:19

    Good to hear from ya Wazz – I didn't fare too much better mate! I do like the idea of stashing a bit of coin by going Gallen > Lowe. Still undecided mate

      Nathan · 09/03/2016 at 21:24

      I recommend not going Lowe mate…. He is and will always be a 330k player- average 50 odd- if you have the Gal cash- go large. I could be wrong but if your plan is to keep him through the byes then I reckon your missing out of big points

Casper · 08/03/2016 at 19:54

1000 on the dot for me with Carter as a non playing reserve…..grrrr! Was hoping to avoid trading at all this week but with Henry, Green, C Matautia and a non playing back (for loophole) in my centres unfortunately I have to.

    jockreynolds · 08/03/2016 at 20:23

    What rank does that make you Cas?

      Casper · 08/03/2016 at 21:11

      10kish but I'm in for long haul jockie !!

    Coach_Cowboy · 09/03/2016 at 19:09

    1000 is a great start mate, nice one!

'Don't Blush Babbie' · 08/03/2016 at 20:18

I was lucky I didn't have Gallen but if I was trading him out I would go – Fifita FR,Mannering 2nd Row NZ,Cartwright 2nd Row – 5/8,Bromich FR NZ or Graham FR Pommie, depending on who you have or don't have they will be keepers to the end, I know Lowe had a big 1st round I just don't think he will be in your final side.

jockreynolds · 08/03/2016 at 20:55

Here's a link to my team lads – would love your thoughts! http://s3-ap-southeast-2.amazonaws.com/imagesck/S

    Casper · 08/03/2016 at 21:17

    Hey jock, forwards look good but having Hoffman on bench is a bit of a waste, he is a good player but not in SC but you've bought him so should be picking him or trading him. Rankin should be a non playing reserve and should only be played if you have no one else, cash cow only! I'm very anti Michael Gordon but I'd stick solid with janes Roberts, he'll go very large at some stage!! Just my thoughts jockie!!!!

    Casper · 08/03/2016 at 21:23

    Personally jock I'd trade Gordon for a cheapie and upgrade Hoffman to either Fensom,Merrin, matolino or another top $ 2nd rower OR downgrade Hoffman to Paul carter and upgrade Gordon to a keeper like Harris

    Shane-ooo · 09/03/2016 at 00:56

    Copley is a plodder, won't make a lot of cash and not worth a starting spot
    Gordons average has been sliding for years now as has his relevance
    Roberts could be very hit and miss and word is he's carrying injuries and will be a week to week proposition
    I'd start Barba over Rankin
    Gallen should be moved on, Graham would be my suggestion
    and I'd be using Hoffman, Evans and Mataora as playing reserves over any of the backs. they may not have as high a ceiling but their score deviation is way better

    That's my 2 bobs worth Jock! Hope it's helpful

      'Don't Blush Babbie' · 09/03/2016 at 15:37

      Jock ,I would go ;
      Gallen for Fifita – he goes big when when Gals out,but you will lose FRF 7 2ND Row swing OR you can put Gal back to the 2ND Row by swapping him with CP13 and bring in Captain Mannering – KIwi who plays 70 -80 minutes
      Benry – P.Carter – if you have enough cash or keep him for loophole but you really have 1 chance with Carty on Thursday.
      Flash Gordon – I'M HOLDING – With Foran back Parras attacking stats will pick up,although they are playing the Cowboys
      Hope that helps maaate

    Coach_Cowboy · 09/03/2016 at 19:08

    Jock that team is epic! Benry and Hoffman to Carter and Turner could get you some solid scores and quick cash.Assuming Turner stays fit

    Nathan · 09/03/2016 at 21:31

    Honestly Jock- how much cash in the kitty? My first corrective trade in this side would be to sub Patker to the front row, trade Gal to Carter and trade Rankin to JT.
    Then I would look to turn Hoffman into Fifta the following week but subbing Parker back down to second row and downgrading Roberts

Nathan · 09/03/2016 at 13:20

ive put 1036 on the board and sitting 4kish – I feel that the winner will come from that sort of ranking first up – lets hope its me. predicted to go 1058 next round. finished 61st last year. would be good to improve on that

    jockreynolds · 09/03/2016 at 15:25

    Great work Nathan!! Would love to have a look at your team old mate! What selection dramas are you facing this week?

      Nathan · 09/03/2016 at 20:58

      Hey Jock- the obvious is Gal- I'm turning him straight into Mannering and Henry straight into H Hunt. Plenty of points- spewing I can't screen shot my team on here.

      Hooker- Smith and Niko
      Front Row- Fifta Parker Evans Gavet
      Second Row- Fensom Mannering Surgess Cartright Carter Saifiti
      Halfback – Mbye Taylor
      5/8 – Thurston Hastings
      CTW – Oates Linnett Hunt Mitchell Davis Green P Mata'utai
      FB- Slater Feeney

      Hope this helps Jock, can't wait for the AFL- think I have a cracker of a side too, read every post mate and I'm a huge fan.

      FYI- I start preparing my side for the byes in round 7- if you want to talk smack, let me know

        Nathan · 09/03/2016 at 21:08

        My team name is S.W.A.T- you can jump on and have a look

    Coach_Cowboy · 09/03/2016 at 19:05

    Solid first round! Don't forget there were a number of teams that went for the 20k round 1 prize. They'll probably drop fairly quickly over time. The round 1 winner chose Cherrington which is a crazy choice with no upside in the long term.

Rabbits16 · 09/03/2016 at 19:33
